With over two weeks of the Fall sports season complete, student-athletes will officially return to the classroom beginning tomorrow. With a solid mixture of both in person and online learning models, students in Cambridge City Schools have been given the opportunity to choose which model they are most comfortable. Administration and building principals have worked tirelessly to organize and coordinate the return of students and, while confident, are stressing: grace, patience and flexibility.
Members of the Cambridge Athletic Department continue to rise to the challenges that have been presented this year. In what sometimes seems like daily changes to the landscape, student-athletes, coaches, parents and staff have met each with determination and perseverance. Athletic Director Aaron Quinn summarized the department’s approach, “In spite of the challenges, concerns and complaints of a few, I could not be prouder of our players, coaches and staff.” “Our motto for this Fall, and perhaps the entire year, is: IT’S A GREAT DAY TO GET BETTER. We try to look at every day as an opportunity to get better in every aspect of our lives.” Quinn continued, “although extremely difficult, these past few months have taught us many valuable lessons including not taking anything for granted. We want to embrace each day as a chance to improve. It is easy to lower expectations or reduce competition to feel better about yourself. However, doing those things will not challenge our players or coaches to reach higher.”
Along with the return to the classroom, tomorrow also holds a full slate of Bobcat action including: Girls Tennis (home), CMS Football (away), JV and Varsity Volleyball (home), Girls Soccer (away) and JV and Varsity Boys Soccer (home).
